My Morning Jacket - Touch Me I'm Going To Scream Pt. 2

A music video for My Morning Jacket created by Mixtape Club. "Mixtape Club drew from an array of inspirations such as the BBC's "Planet Earth", foliage plucked from the streets of New York City, and the work of Russian animator Yuri Norstein. The jungle world was built entirely from elements painted digitally. The finished product is a haunting, seemingly hand-painted, lonely story with a touch of fairy tale sweetness." More of Mixtape Club's work along with higher resolution previews are available on their website.

United "Sea Orchestra"

"Sea Orchestra" is a whimsical, Hieronymus Bosch-styled commercial for United. The elements were produced by Shy the Sun, a South Africa-based directing team; using hand-drawn textures, computer animation characters and photographs of water, reefs and skies. The elements were then finished by Lung Animation, who did the 3D modeling and final animations.

Shy the Sun’s founders, The Blackheart Gang, also created this equally awesome and trippy animated short; "The Tale of How".

Using Photographs to Enhance Videos of a Static Scene

I swear I put this up a year ago but as a YouTube video... something very similar anyway. This is incredibly cool technology!

Feeder - Tracing Lines

This is the latest video from UK band, Feeder. I'm loving the chopped up video, use of 3D space and nice camera work in this video. They shot with three cameras running in sync to capture the band and layered the takes together in Adobe After Effects. I think it's fabulous.

With My Good Eye Closed by Vince Ream

This one starts out a bit slow but at about 3 minutes in, the effects are amazing. Vince Ream is the director:

I used After Effects for all the animation and compositing. I used Adobe Premiere for all the editing. The most important part was time, and making sure everything I did was what I wanted before moving on.
There's a section with hologram CD covers that rotate around this girl and she touches them and they play. The album and paper effects remind me of the HP ads that were out about a year ago. The giant head effect is trippy too. The tracking and compositing are so well done in this video. Wow. That's all I can say.... wow. So much eye candy, I'm on overload.

Ida Maria- I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked

Pop-art fun! Warhol would be proud... don't worry, nothing graphic, unless you find bananas to be offensive.
